Mitsui Fudosan America and architecture firm Gensler initially revealed plans for a straightforward 39-story tower. New plans show a taller structure with a series of landscaped terraces, and cantilevered balconies on each floor would ring the building. The project at 754 S. Hope St. would have 547 apartments. There would also be approximately 37,000 square feet of space for a charter school serving kindergarten through fifth grade students, though the school could be replaced by 33 additional residential units. Parking would be on eight floors, three of them underground.

No budget or timeline have been revealed.
